Our Making Places Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) gives advice on how to prepare a new development proposal, and applies to all sizes of development.
You should read the advice on this page in conjunction with the Making Places SPD.
There are some essential steps you need to follow when designing a new development, which are:
- site appraisal
- design and masterplans
- pre-application advice
- quality review panel
- making a planning application
Pre-application discussions are an on-going process, and you should start them with us as early as possible for the best possible outcome.
